sbo666 Carlos Vela turned his back on Europe to join Los Angeles FC aged 29. Should the former Arsenal striker have achieved more with his talents? Nick Wright examines the Mexican's enigmatic career as he prepares for Saturday's inaugural Los Angeles derby…

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's move from Manchester United to LA Galaxy this week came with the usual fanfare and self-promotion. His tweet confirming the deal, published after an image depicting him as God, was accompanied by the message: "Los Angeles, welcome to Zlatan." A full-page advert taken out in a local newspaper simply read: "You're welcome."

The Swede is the centre of attention in Major League Soccer ahead of the first Los Angeles derby, but the most intriguing new addition in Saturday's game will line up for LA Galaxy's newly-formed opposition. At the age of 29, seven years Ibrahimovic's junior, Carlos Vela has called time on his career in Europe to become the face of Los Angeles FC.

The move, confirmed back in August before he saw out the first half of the season at Real Sociedad, was a coup for MLS. But what did it say about him? How did Vela, one of the most naturally gifted strikers of his generation, end up signing for a team who were yet to play a professional game, in a league of questionable quality, at what should be his peak? sbo666

It is a curious story which began in 2005, when Vela top scored for Mexico during their triumphant U17 World Cup campaign in Peru. With his speed, skill and instinctive ability in front of goal, the precocious striker shot to the attention of European clubs. Within a few weeks, Arsenal had won the race to sign him from Mexican side Chivas.

Arsenal supporters would have to wait two years for a first-hand sighting of Vela as he was sent on loan to Spain to acquire a work permit, but his talents were clear to everyone at second-division Salamanca, where he spent his first season as a professional in 2006/07, scoring eight goals in 31 appearances.

"He was a just a boy but he had great qualities," Javi López, Salamanca's manager at the time, tells Sky Sports. "He exceeded our expectations. He had an enormous amount of innate ability but above all he was a boy who had a lot of confidence in himself. He knew he had weapons for football and he overcame all the challenges in front of him with relative ease."

López describes Vela as one of the "sensations" of Spain's second division that season, but did he see him as a future star? His answer is emphatic but there are caveats.

"Yes, yes, absolutely, yes," he says. "I always told him that he had the attributes to play at an elite level - for any of the big European teams. But it's not just about having the talent. You need mental strength and above all, desire."

The debate over Vela's desire has followed him throughout his career. Did he truly want to fulfil his potential? Was he ready to make the sacrifices required to make it to the very top? Arsene Wenger grappled with the same questions after Vela finally qualified for a work permit on loan at Osasuna and joined up with Arsenal in 2008. sbo666

sbothai Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is set to reward Marcus Rashford with a starting role for the FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur after he impressed in the midweek Premier League win at Bournemouth.

The Englishman was one of the seven changes made by Mourinho on Wednesday night, and the move paid dividends as United clinched a 2-0 victory – just days after the embarrassing 1-0 home defeat to relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion.

Over the week, Mourinho has highlighted that he would only pick players based on merit for the Cup semi-final, and according to The Sun, Rashford has supposedly got the nod over Sanchez and Alexis Sanchez for a starting spot. sbothai

With Romelu Lukaku due to start, Rashford is likely to slot into the left side of the attack with Lingard on the other flank and the decision is likely to disappoint both Sanchez and Martial – with the latter said to be unsettled at Old Trafford. 

Sanchez arrived at United in January with huge expectations but he has tended to lose possession of the ball on countless occasions which has frustrated the supporters watching. Nevertheless, he can prove an impact player from the bench in a contest which could be decided by the smallest of margins. sbothai

David Moyes admits no decision has been made on Joe Hart's West Ham future
 
maxbet David Moyes has admitted Joe Hart's future is uncertain as West Ham prepare to take on his parent club Manchester City on Sunday, live on Sky Sports. The Hammers will welcome the champions to the London Stadium, with Hart unable to play due to stipulations of the loan agreement and Adrian coming in to take his place.

Recent reports have suggested Adrian may be playing his last match for the Hammers, while Moyes would not be drawn on whether the club have refused to take up the option of signing England international Hart on a permanent deal."There's certainly no talk on whether it will be Adrian or Joe Hart [as future no 1] until we're in a position of safety, or wherever we're going to be," Moyes said in his pre-match press conference on Friday. maxbet

Moyes is hoping for a performance good enough to keep Adrian in the starting XI for the remaining weeks of the campaign. "I hope he plays that well against Manchester City that he's available to play the next one, that's the plan. If you get in and you do well [you stay in]. "You can't play a Manchester United or City and do well without your keeper playing well so we need a big game from Adrian on Sunday."

City will arrive in east London already confirmed as Premier League champions, though Moyes believes there is never an easy time to face Pep Guardiola's men, who won't let their foot off the gas. "I don't know if there's any good time to play Manchester City with the form they're in and the players they've got available. "We'll do everything we can to give them a game and make it as tough as we can and the objective is to try and take all the points."

The Scotsman also confirmed youngster Declan Rice would be getting a contract renewal, once the season comes to an end. "We're due to renew it. If he'd played a certain amount of games in the first team then it was due for renewal so we'll do that. "We'll not bother ourselves just now. We'll do it in the next week or two at the end of the season, but he's done very well." maxbet

Ian Wright calls Steven Gerrard's potential move to Rangers 'perfect'


 
ฟุตบอล ออนไลน์ Ian Wright says Steven Gerrard's potential managerial move to Rangers is "perfect" for both parties and can only help the Liverpool legend's career. Graeme Murty was sacked on Monday after a 5-0 loss to Old Firm rivals Celtic at the weekend, and current Liverpool U18 coach Gerrard has confirmed that talks between himself and the club were "positive" and will carry on this week. With the former midfielder looking set for a move to Ibrox in the coming days, Wright is fully behind the appointment and believes it would be a good next step for his burgeoning managerial career. 
"With Steven being the personality that he is, wherever he goes, he is going to have that focus on him so you might as well go somewhere like Rangers where their aim is to get closer to Celtic," he said on The Debate. "The only problem Steven will have is if he starts losing to the other teams, he can't get his message over or they aren't playing well enough. I don't think that will happen if he surrounds himself with the right people. "If they are going to back him and give him exactly what he wants, it's perfect because it's a magnificent club and they are way behind Celtic, so anything he can do to progress and get them closer is going to be a success for him.

"The pressure in Scotland is very crystallised and what it will do is get him ready for whatever may come in the future for him. It's almost as if Liverpool are loaning him out. "For him to have the opportunity to have a job of that stature and that size, I think it's perfect." Dennis Wise - who has managerial experience at the likes of Millwall and Leeds - agrees with Wright, and believes his Liverpool connections will be a big benefit. ฟุตบอล ออนไลน์

"He has got an opportunity where he can go to Liverpool and say 'I would like to loan that player and that player' and he will get help from them," he added. "When you're walking into that environment and he needs some help or wants a certain player that they're not using, he's in that position where he can pick the phone up to certain individuals. "If you want your boys to play and have experience, you want them to go out and play in front of the big crowds, go up against men and get knocked over.

"I think he has a really unique situation where he can point to people, knock on the door and pick the phone up. That is the key to it as well, being able to have that personality and stature to turn around and say 'I would like that player'. "He would know those players and get so much help because people want him to do well." ฟุตบอล ออนไลน์
